Was hanging out waiting for our daughter to finish Stripes at LSU. Was looking for something to do and found a gem. This plantation is stunning. The mansion is huge. Tour was informative. The cafe was yummy and staff attentive. Had the chocolate bourbon pecan tart.

Oak Alley and Nottoway are my most favorite plantations. Just 1 and half hour drive from New Orleans, these 2 plantations can easily be covered in a day. This plantation is like a white castle inside and outside. The tours are very informational and you get to learn a piece of history. Must visit!

we took the tour and were well guided through a couple of the rooms in the main mansion for an hour, but most of it cannot been seen. i think you should better just walk around it and in the gardens

I am sorry you were not able to see the entire Mansion. Our Plantation is now a resort with overnight guest rooms that you can reserve for a night, or a few nights if you choose to stay more. Whenever these rooms are not being cleaned between reservations we do have them open to the public for viewing. We try... More

We went to several plantations and this was our favorite. It was well worth the drive. Be sure to spend time on the grounds too. Swing under the live oak trees. Shop and dine. The tour itself was pricey but worth it. It was probably twice as long as the one at Oak Alley. They let us wait inside since... More

After touring many plantations from Memphis to New Orleans, this was the granddaddy of them all. The outside and the grounds as beautiful and very impressive. The house is huge! However, it is now run as a B&B as well as a touring plantation. Almost none of the furniture was original or even period. A decorator had been brought in... More

Thank you for visiting Nottoway Plantation. I am very saddened to hear that you did not enjoy your tour here. We do strive to give all of our guests the most accurate historical information about the Plantation. With that being said, the Plantation is over 150 years old and the Randolph family that lived in the Home was a very... More

Our self-guided tour with headsets, was lovely. I am glad we arrived at a time to not go on the guided tour. We all love history and architecture, so when we had finished listening to a section, we could stand and discuss it. The home is beautiful and we loved the details. Historically, there really needs to be some updating... More

The tour was great. Julie, the guide brought us around the Main mansion and told us about the history of the house and the family that built it. We could ask any questions and she told us loads of facts. The downside was the price per person. $20 plus tax per person is a bit steep for a 45min to... More
